SHANGHAI SUZY | LIPSTICK




So, I'm on a bit of a lip product kick. You would have noticed that the last few posts have all been about lips..... and the lip love continues in this post. 

Today I'm raving about an Australian brand called Shanghai Suzy. The brand was founded in my home town of Melbourne by a former Marketing Executive of a cosmetic company. What I love about the brand, is that it's affordable and great for anyone on a beauty budget. In Australia, we even pay a premium on what most people would consider drug store product, a L'Oreal lipstick can easily set us back $20. Shanghai Suzy lipsticks are only $12.95 and the quality isn't compromised because  of the price. 


The lipsticks are extremely pigmented (every beauty bloggers favourite word) and the colour range is amazing. The colours are unique and have a lot of character.  I remember the first time I received a lipstick was within a show bag. The moment I opened up the packaging, it was over for me. I was in love with the smell. The lipsticks smelt exactly like Grape Hubba Bubba, how can you say no to that?

The only thing I would say about these products is they are very creamy, so if your lips don't agree with a creamier formula you might want to look at priming your lips first or using a mattifying balm underneath. 

If you're an Australian beauty lover, I would 100% recommend checking them out. The moment I tried the first one, I got online and ordered so many more.

I can't wait to get my hands on the new collection, the colours look amazing - as always!

P.S. the names are adorable, I always wondered if they were named after people the founder knew/knows. 


Hope you're all having an amazing day and thank you for reading.
